02/26/2020 Update: Greetings Scouts and Parents 
The Ice Fishing Festival scheduled for Saturday will go as scheduled. 
We checked the ice yesterday and found 12-15" of ice. 
With the rain this week and freezing temperatures the ice will be smooth and slippery. 
BRING MICROSPIKES or OTHER TRACTION DEVICES TO HELP WALK ON THE ICE. 
Bring ice skates if you wish, the expected smooth surface should be good for skating. 
Bring snacks, water and clothing appropriate for the weather. 
We will have all the fishing gear and bait. 
We are partnered with MassWildlife Angler Education Program so licenses are not required. 
Park at the main lot off Sugar Hill Road and look for signs for the path to the pond. 
FISH ON! 

Come and learn the fun of fishing through the ice!
